Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Bear Tracks!

This one has always been one of my favorites! And while it has a couple rough spots, the band feeling their way through the materiel that would later become Working Man's Dead, I wish more '69 files were as clear and brite as this Samaritano SBD.

Slewfoot is so much fun, Its a shame it was not played during the wooden sets the following year.

Jer is still getting the hang of the pedal steel, but Mama Tried and Me and My Uncle (performed semi-acoustic), are very cool, as is the nifty intro-jam prior to Casey Jones.

But dont miss the Dire Wolf with Weir on vocals if you have not heard it before...

6/27/69 - Veterans Auditorium, Santa Rosa, CA

Slewfoot, Mama Tried-> High Time, Dupree's Diamond Blues, Me & My Uncle, Jam-> Casey Jones, Dire Wolf, Sitting On Top Of The World-> Big Boss Man, Dark Star-> Saint Stephen-> The Eleven-> Green Green Grass Of Home, It's All Over Now Baby Blue

While the first half of this show is pure fun, the band gets serious during the jam and the Dark Star is dynamite, and certainly one of the better versions from 1969. Why not enjoy it in "vault" quality?

Perfect timing, Cliff. I was just looking for something to see off the working week when you recommended this. Up until a few years ago I was ignorant of any versions of SOTOTW other than Cream (I know, dim, huh) but now I seek out Dead shows that have them. So different, so up.

Love this one Cliff, great call!

Can't add much except to say that the Casey Jones is interesting not only because of that "nifty" intro riff (kind of motown sounding to me) but also because Jerry hasn't really worked out the lead part for the song yet.

The Dire Wolf was actually released as a bonus track on a re-release of Workingman's Dead. Definitely worth a listen.

The only disappointment is that the eleven seems to get cut short.

Agree with all!

Think I was enlightened on this one by you (or Arb?) some six months or so ago. Loved it then, but have let it slide in the rotation.

Good, timely reminder!

Thanks Cliff. Be careful with those "fish", BTW.

Sharking has been excellent! Last week we nailed three Makos, the largest was 216#. Yesterday we toughed it out through hoards of agressive Blue sharks to take this nice 130 pounder. I know you live on the island, why dont you join us sometime, we usually need anglers...

Did I hear Phil say "bear droppings?"

Right on, another fine and fun show! In fact the Slewfoot is even better than the previous night. I dig Bills rim-shot gunfire!

We could have used you today! In spite of poor conditions, we "harvested" another nice mako this morning!

And lastcall, the cats dont seem to care for the ceviche, any suggestions?

I don't think Cats like lime, you will have to make 'non-lime' ceviche.

How far are you going for Mako? I was talking to a guy yesterday who said they were getting some in a spot called glory hole.

Any sign of tuna?

We have been fishing in 25 fathoms, about 12 miles SE of Shinnecock inlet, let me know if you'd like the loran coordinates.

Tuna have not really started yet, no warm core eddies have pushed up against the bank yet. There have been a few very small Yellowfin caught, but its not worth the effort/expense. I have not seen any school Bluefins inshore, but some Montauk boats saw a few schools early in the month.

I fish most Thursdays out of Hampton Bays, you should join us...
